Sea of Trees Lyrics

There is a place, that has been home to troubled souls, since days of yore,
A sea of trees, that swallows whole and drags you, far beyond the shore,
Crawl on your knees, deep in the mists, cower in fear, danger is near
Whispers and lies, wandering eyes, nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

As you step over the threshold, a cold terror grasps your heart,
For there is no way of knowing if you will make it home or not,
There will be no crowd of mourners or a heartfelt eulogy
Hanging high from every tree like some disgraceful pageantry
Fresh corpses, young and old alike, exhorting death, defying life
There’s no ending in sight

This is what life is like; time is not on our side,
If we don’t take our time, pay the price, you’re done for!
This is what life is like; we must fight ‘til we die
If you can’t stand and fight, run and hide, you’re done for!

It is as if the trees are closing in
As though they know the show’s about to begin
Go ahead and make a scene
There’ll be no one there to hear you screaming

As you venture ever deeper, it’s getting harder to deny
That there is no hope in hell of getting out of here alive,
There will be no wreath of flowers or one final litany,
Hanging high from every tree like some disgraceful pageantry
Fresh corpses, young and old alike, exhorting death, defying life
There’s no ending in sight

This is what life is like; time is not on our side,
If we don’t take our time, pay the price, you’re done for!
This is what life is like; we must fight ‘til we die
If you can’t stand and fight, run and hide, you’re done for!

Just when you think you’re satisfied and life is a beach,
There’s always something better that is just out of reach,
Success is friends and family, making money and love,
These are the unrequited dreams that life is made of…

You’re so stupid, no one likes you
What a loser, go and get a life
Take the rope and tie a kind and friendly knot
Paint red roses on the canvas of your arms
Swallow down the quick and potent medicine
Enjoy it whilst it lasts because soon you will be gone
The torment, the horror, the worst of it’s over
Now that the end is in sight

This is what life is like; time is not on our side,
If we don’t take our time, pay the price, you’re done for!
This is what life is like; we must fight ‘til we die
If you can’t stand and fight, run and hide, you’re done for now!
